Walden was not what I expected. I was looking for the story of a man who had decided to live outside society for two years. Instead, I found an essay about how economical and practical it is to do as he did.
I think I would have liked the book better if it was about Thoreau's reflective journey to the conclusions he reached rather than about how clever he finds himself to be and how he'd been right all along.

The first half of this book was not pleasant to read. Thoreau was sharing his opinions on the ways other people live their lives and honestly at times I disliked the author. The book did take a turn for the better about halfway through when he started talking about living in the woods. I did end up really enjoying the book.

Excellent. I own it but have not rushed to finish it due to other reading obligations, however it is the totem of reflection, with richer detail than most contemporary fiction.
